Hi All,
I just realized that there is no official thread on XDA where users can share ZW home screens, themes and ideas, so I'm creating one. If you do not know it yet, well, Zooper Widget is a minimal, classy, extremely customizable and battery friendly "do it yourself" Home Screen Widget with almost limitless possibilities.

More info
HOMEPAGE: http://zooper.org/wp/android/zw
MARKET (FREE): https://play.google.com/store/apps/d....zooper.zwfree
MARKET (PRO): https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...g.zooper.zwpro
ICONSETS: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2084070
APK SUPPORT: http://goo.gl/mo0Gi
G+GALLERY: http://goo.gl/239Bs

Main features
WYSISYG Widget editor with unlimited Text, Series, Progress Bars, Iconsets, Bitmaps and Shapes. Every aspect is customizable, you can use tons of variables with any kind of data or modify them using conditionals, date calculations, math expressions, bb code like syntax, text filters and more (more info, examples and variable reference on the website).

Free/Pro
Free version on the market is full featured, you can create the same layouts as the Pro, the only difference is that Free does not allow you to save and load external templates, it-s ad based, and has no "hotspot" functionality. Developing software and fixing bugs takes a huge amount of time that's why i needed to split it in two releases, hope you'll understand.

How to share screens and templates
When you save your template Zooper Widget (PRO) stores two files in the SD card, under "ZooperWidget" folder, one is a PNG with a screenshot of your awesome creation (so you can easily post it to the forum) the other one is a ".zw" file containing the template itself. The ".zw" is a zip archive with all the data in it, so if you used Bitmaps, external Fonts, Iconsets or any other resource you won't need to distribute them, those items will be part of the ".zw" template and will be extracted automatically. To load the template on another device you just need to place it in the ZooperWidget SD card folder and load it.

APK skins
Zooper Widget PRO from 2.38 supports APK skin packs, you can store as many templates as you want in a single APK distributable on the market, you can even include templates on existing APK if you want (so you can distribute an Icon Pack for ADW with some ZW template in a single shot), more info here http://goo.gl/mo0Gi

Resizing
Zooper Widget supports automatic resize on load if the template is larger than the target widget, otherwise original size will be kept, you can tune the size using the "Scale" option. Please note that, compared to other similar widgets, ZW does not just scale the output Bitmap, but the source Canvas resulting in a much more clean / smooth image.

What's next?
Zooper Widget is always a work in progress, i just released Bitmap support and I'm now working on really exciting features requested by users (and yes, if you have any idea just ask!). Most important upcoming stuff is:
  • Ability to group or tag layers and move / edit them at once (but remember you can already use the copy/paste functionality to copy one property to multiple items at once)
  • Widget wide Parameters (to allow better APK support, if you want to lock everything and use custom settings)

Here's a couple I made today playing with this. I'm a noob to Zooper Widget but it's pretty cool so far.





Status Bar
Ext Weather
Ext Weather HTC

Credit for iconsets and config file I started with goes to stepdragon in the zooper Thread

What I would really like to do with the status bar is have the WiFi icon appear where the Signal bars are when WiFi is active. For instance if I am at home and have data disabled and wifi enabled, the icons would switch from signal bars to wifi bars. I have no programming skills so if it is possible to make that work in the config file hopefully someone will tweak and share.

The only way I could think of making it work would be having a variable that was checking data connection state and displaying a blank icon if data was disabled.

The WiFi icon disappears when wifi is off and the Alarm icon disappears when alarm is off.

You can do this, you need to create a custom iconset that checks if WiFi is connected and if connected will show the Wifi bars otherwise i will show the signal ones (same for the Alarm). Please check the config.xml syntax here: http://zooper.org/wp/android/zw/iconsets you can start using the ones you are already using.

WARNING when you use signal info in zooper widget the widgets are updated every time the signal changes, this might use a lot of cpu when screen is on if your signal keeps changing especially if you have a lot of widgets on screen, im working on a solution

P.S. really good home screen! awesome work!

Busy Body Zooper
This has been one of my favorite themes from UCCW thread. Originally created by John Nada, all credit for theme/layout goes to him. I just changed some things and made it available for Zooper Widget.

All widgets are 5x1. I am using this on my Galazy Note II. Not sure how Zooper handles different screen sizes / Grid sizes of different launchers so hope it works for everyone else. Feedly widget is 4x2 stretched to fit in the middle. Use the wallpaper included in the zip to get the frame that appears around the feedly widget.

Each icon on the widgets are shortcuts to an app. You might have to change the app shortcut for whatever you want.

Image Fonts
Is it possible to use images as font for Clock Widgets? As in have 10 images 0-1 to use as the clock digits.

Also, what about RSS feeds?
